Z has a "consult" with an orthodontist because of his under bite. I don't know for sure if this will lead to braces or not, but at any rate, I am asking for prayers for wisdom about the situation and provision to cover the costs if it does. Plus, considering how he's "taken care of" his new glasses (fyi, we've already had to send away for the warranty-covered replacement frames), I worry about his maturity for maintaining braces.
S has surgery scheduled for March 30th to have her wisdom teeth removed. We had her consultation today with the oral surgeon and the poor girl was in tears when I read to her the risks involved with surgery and anesthesia. I'd already done a great job spooking her about the procedure because of the complications I had after my surgery when I was 17. (Bad, Mama!) Then the consent form I had to sign just put her over the edge with anxiety.
I'm sure it'll be fine -- I mean, I had a hard time with dry sockets, etc., but I lived to tell about it!
Also, I need prayers that childcare will be worked out for our other kids during each appointment, as well as our nieces that I would normally be watching at that time.
Thanks so much.
